The next solar cycle can not be

The results of three studies, announced during a press conference, suggest that the next 11-year cycle of solar activity will be much quieter than the current one. Moreover, in a sense, he may be suspended: predicts that sunspots will disappear completely for the first time in 400 years.

If this trend continues ("if" is very large, it should be noted), solar "hibernation" will have a very slight cooling effect on climate. Just soften the solar wind, rushing toward Earth and damaging satellites, power grids and other electronics. And experts will study the Sun in this phase, which in the

NASA announcement: the sun spots disappear, that is a signal to a large drop in solar activity

NASA announcement: the sun spots disappear, that is a signal to a large drop in solar activityIf studies are correct, it is the last solar maximum, which we will see in the coming decade. "" It can affect everything from space to the earth's climate. "Unusual solar behavior, including the disappearance of sunspots and weakening magnetic activity may be a sign that our sun is preparing to be less active in the coming years.The results of three separate studies have shown that even when the current cycle of sunspots reaches solar maximum, the sun comes in a dormant period

Solar flares today hit America. Video

An unusual solar flare observed by NASA observatory Tuesday. In the next few days, it can cause disruptions to satellite communications and terrestrial power grids.

A huge explosion on the sun caused an avalanche of radiation, the likes of which astronomers have not seen since 2006. This outbreak may lead to moderate geomagnetic activity in the evening on June 8 to the end of the next day.

A solar flare is estimated as M-2 (medium) and its maximum is observed at 05:41 UT on. Observatory SDO took a series of photographs in the ultraviolet range, which is celebrated giant

Chilean volcanic chain creates a very powerful eruption

Flame to the sky like lightning, criss-cross the sky. These amazing images show the full force of Mother Nature as a Chilean volcano erupts for the first time in 50 years. Ashes were thrown six miles up into the sky, and South America, the government ordered the evacuation of thousands of residents. Winds fanned the ash toward neighboring Argentina, darkening the sky in the ski resort town of San Carlos de Bariloche, in the center of the country, and its airport has also been closed. Eruption in the Puyehue-Cordon Caulle volcanic chain, about 575 miles south of Santiago,

Earthquakes in the Virgin Islands

Virgin Islands and Karbisky region joined the growing list of seismically active zones.

Territorial Emergency Management Agency, said that he had noticed the increased number of aftershocks, do not worry. Starting on Monday, and to this day, there are small permanent earthquake.

More than 50 small earthquakes were recorded near the Virgin Islands, according to VITEMA (Virgin Islands Territorial Emergency Management Agency). Propulsion was within 5.2, 4.6 and 4.7 points.

Victor Huerfano, head of the seismic network in Puerto Rico, has confirmed that they are now fixed increase of seismic activity. However, this phenomenon is 4 or 5 times

Magnetic storm began on Earth

In the night from Saturday to Sunday on Earth began a magnetic storm, Kp index of geomagnetic disturbances has reached a value of 6, one more than the minimum value, which is considered a storm, according to the space weather forecast center of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of the USA (NOAA).

"It's okay, the sun continues to move to a new peak of activity, it is observed from 5 to 10 active regions. June 1 was a coronal mass ejection, then another, and now solar plasma ejection reached Earth, "- said the head of the Center

RAS: In 2012, the Sun mad, a catastrophe waiting U.S. and Canada

In 2012, the increase in solar activity can lead to a series of man-made disasters nand the U.S. and Canada, told reporters the director of the Institute of Space Research, RAS Academician Lev Zeleny.  According to the scientist, the data obtained in recent years after Canadian researchers Solar Flares, indicate that during this period out of action a few transformers. Thus, the consequences of outbreaks can be unpredictable.

As noted academician, speaking at a round table on space activities, in the following year the inhabitants of the Earth can be expected technological problems, as experts predict a strong emission

Solar activity is developing, geomagnetic storm observed in both hemispheres

The flow of solar wind hit Earth's magnetic field on May 28, Class G2, observed bright auroras in the polar latitudes. "In Alberta, east of Edmonton, he watched as the rain auroras," says photographer Zoltan Kenwell. "The blue, purple and green were everywhere." Both ends of the earth were visible radiance. People saw auroras in Tasmania, New Zealand, Antarctica, Wisconsin and Minnesota. The solar wind is still blowing hard and May 30, NOAA forecasters estimate the probability of 35% of geomagnetic activity in the next 24 hours. Sunspots come across the disk of the sun. NOAA analysts estimate a

Human activities has led to a reduction in the animals in the forests of Brazil

Number of many species of animals living in the forests of Brazil, has dwindled as a result of large-scale felling of trees, hunting and other forms of human activity in these areas, environmentalists say in an article in the journal PLoS One.

"You can assume that the fragments of tropical forests with relatively preserved forest cover have the resources to maintain a high level of biological diversity. Our study shows that in fact it happens very rarely, and animals in the tropics is preserved only when in the woods hunting is forbidden" — said the head of the group, Carlos

The prophecy of the end of the ancient Maya, it seems, can come true

The unpredictable 11-year cycle

Despite the skepticism of many scientists who do not trust the prophecies of the ancient Mayan, which ended their calendar year 2012, are confirmation of impending catastrophe. And even — to assert that global cataclysm will look exactly as it is shown us in his film "2012" directed by Roland Emmerich.

Recall that in the blockbuster it was shown how a solar flare and electromagnetic radiation hit the Earth. Its interior heated, like in a microwave, boil. And
